This happened quite frequently to a lot of people when cell phones first came out. It wasn't something that was done intentionally either. The man with the scanner just happened to be on the same frequency as Diana's conversation.

Well he was listening to pick up conversations, silly and nosy behaviour but Im not sure if it is actually illegal.. He just happened to luck out and get that particiular conversation which was dynamite.. but he apparnetly sold it for a very small sum to a paper. not a nice man but not very bright either...

Does anyone else here subscribe to Private Eye, the British magazine dedicated to pointing out hypocrisy among other things? It's little bit of sunshine in my mailbox every now and again. They are not online.

The latest issue supposes that Tony Hall, the then head of the BBC who put the Bashir inquiry to bed, was then rewarded with positions and quangos in institutions where the PoW reigned supreme.

Hall was on the cusp of being set up for The Order of Merit, according to PE. That's in the wind now, along with his National Gallery position.

It is a great publication. The Editor of The Spectator is Ian Hislop, one of the key presenters of the long running BBC show, Have I Got News for You.
